San Jose, CA, United States, 2012/05/30 - Wrike, a leading provider of social project management software, today unveiled a new freemium version of its award-winning practical project management platform that delivers full-featured work graph management to organizations of any size on any budget .
The powerful new free plan is ideal for connecting contractors, customers and other external team members with internal groups to collaborate and keep up with project progress. Wrike Freemium includes up to five power users, who can create, assign and change tasks, and an unlimited number of collaborators with the ability to access tasks, attach files, make comments and mark complete. And, unlike many other solutions that limit the number of projects on the free plan, Wrike Freemium offers unlimited projects, providing a more cost-effective and scalable solution for organizations of all sizes.
“We’ve had tremendous success with our paid-only application, which has emerged as one of the most widely used and most preferred project management apps on the market,” said Wrike CEO Andrew Filev. “This new freemium version offers much of the same advanced functionality—including a much broader set of features and greater accessibility than the paid plans of hundreds of other competing apps.”
In addition to unlimited projects and collaborators, Wrike Freemium delivers robust task management beyond the basics, including advanced scheduling, real-time discussion and collaboration in activity streams, selective project and task sharing capabilities with built-in access control for each user, and drag-and-drop prioritizing. The system integrates seamlessly with ubiquitous office productivity tools, including email, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Microsoft Excel and Project. Mobile apps for iPhone and iPad make keeping up and staying on target easy for the entire team, preventing tasks from lingering in limbo when team members are traveling or working remotely.
Adding Gantt chart, workload management, Microsoft Outlook integration and time tracking capability is simple with an easy upgrade to a Wrike premium plan.
Wrike will also debut a new translation platform that allows any volunteer to register and contribute to translating the text from the UI into any language. Since end users know the context of the system perfectly well, making this process user-driven ensures higher accuracy of the translation. Users can add new translations, as well as edit the existing ones. During the private beta testing of the platform, a group of Wrike’s enthusiastic customers contributed to translating their favorite software to their native languages. Besides English, Wrike's user interface is also available in Spanish, Czech, Russian, Portuguese and Japanese.
Our mission is to provide complete information access and collaboration through our work graph platform with a much more open approach to connecting multiple organizations in a very flexible way,” said Andrew Filev, Wrike CEO. “Wrike Freemium makes it more accessible and affordable for teams of all sizes to reap the benefits of social project management and real-time collaboration with an easy-to-use tool that ties everyone together.”
